Just Ok. I had to Unsubscribe.

The misuse of the word “whenever” in place of “when” makes this podcast unlistenable. Also the pfft sound I hear with each word that begins with the letter P was enough to make me unsubscribe. Good content, but the delivery could use improvement.

Simply the best!

I have a small service business with no employees and at times I can feel a little crazy and doubtful. I listen to these ladies with all of their tips and tricks and stories of their personal journey and I’m perked back up. They’re so real and fun! I also just recently bought their book and could not recommend it enough, it feels so perfectly them!

Raw. Real. and AWESOME!

Just wanted to say thank you to Emily and Kathleen for bringing this show to the world and for teaching us all how to do. the. work! It's easy to get lost, in your own head and discouraged as a creative entrepreneur - this show is a must listen when you find yourself in that place! There are amazing tips and tactics shared on how to be a better entrepreneur, but what's made the biggest difference in my life is the permission, and not-so-subtle nudge, Emily and Kathleen give all of us to just be ourselves (as messy, wild, exciting and creative as we may be)!

I love the Being Boss Podcast!!

Emily and Kathleen are so much fun to listen to! I love how they bring in aspects of their personal lives as examples for the concepts they're teaching, and they've somehow found that perfect blend between practical business advice and personal development tips. The only thing I'm worried about now is if I can somehow write off the time I'd like to spend binge-listening to all the previous episodes as "business education"...

Excellent Podcast

I recently listened to the episdoe with Jason Zook. It was awesome hearing his advice on embracing your weird and his advice on finding a healthy relationship with money and debt. Great episode ladies!

Perfect timing

In the beginning of 2019 I decided that I wanted to listen to podcasts that I related with. There were a couple of podcasts that my current job had me listening to about leadership and although they were great for me to listen to I didn’t feel as if I enjoyed listening to what they were saying.When I found Being Boss I felt as if I had found this podcast at the Perfect Time 💕 Kathleen and Emily seem very relatable and they’re a great pair to listen to! They’re professional and jokesters at the same time, and Being a Boss that is finally getting started with promoting myself as my own business, I started listening from the very beginning and I have enjoyed listening to what they graciously share with us Bosses.I’m getting closer to being up to date with the Being Boss podcast and I’m so thankful and grateful to have it as a resource so that if I ever feel stuck or want some motivation I can just pick a relevant episode and get back to work!

Do the work, be boss!

This podcast has been a staple of mine throughout the last two or three years as I have built my own marketing consultancy. Their statement is simple: do the work, be boss! Kathleen and Shannon take a straightforward approach to explaining that there is a lot of boots-on-the-ground action that has to take place in order to run a successful business. It sounds glamorous to be a freelancer in a creative field, but there are definitely other things like accounting, pitches, and boring grunt work that comes along with it. I enjoy their witty banter, the variety of creative business owners that they interview, and listening to their words of wisdom and motivation. If you work from home, own your own business, or just need some “business bestie” in your life, they are a nice addition to your podcast rotation.

Fascinating content!

These two wise women are a powerhouse combined. You’d want to be friends with them. They balance “on task” information (aka the content matches the episode’s title) with a couple of side quips from their own lives and personal business journeys, making the podcast humorous and relatable. I really enjoy how they don’t mind sharing with their audience what they are trying out and why. They don’t come off like experts “from on high,” but more like expert experimenters letting us in on their discoveries (as found in the awesome recent episode about Instagram and blogging). The insights about hashtags were completely relevant to me (while revealing the inner workings of their partnership and thought-processes). I’m excited to see what subjects they tackle in the future!

What happened

This was the first podcast I really started to love, looked forward to their episodes every week. Slowly but surely it has started to reallyyyy fall off. It feels like they spend most of the time just talking about themselves and stopped really giving tangible helpful advice for others to succeed. The IG post they did is what tipped me, giving advice abt hashtags and IG etc when your pages are getting such poor engagement doesn’t seem like the best idea. Not trying to be a hater but honestly disappointed as someone who truly loved this podcast.

So fake and dull

I am not sure something could sound more forced than these ladies. I could not finish the 2nd episode. I turned it on, immediately was like “oh noooo way” then turned it off. I decided to just give it one more try, you never know. Rocky start. Yeah, no. I am blown away by how many positive reviews this has and just how many basic and insincere women there truly are out there. If you want real stuff, from real and genuine people this is not the podcast for you.

Please vet your interviewees first.

I got twenty-two minutes into “Non-profit and for-purpose...” when I realized the professional being interviewed about the structure and how-to was not informed. The question was asked whether or not a board of directors gets paid and the “professional” source being asked said she didn’t know, and that she’s even served on a board before! This podcast, for me, lost all credibility. Unsubscribe.

Empowered and Excited

I’m starting from the beginning because I don’t want to miss a single word of wisdom, inspiring interview, or inside joke. I’m on episode 13 and I’ve already made so many changes to the way I engage with my business and partners. Thank you for taking the time to educate and empower!

Can’t get enough of this podcast

I’ve been loving this podcast and binge-listening for the past few months since I came across it. I’m about to start their book Being Boss and can’t wait for even more great advice. Very good stuff for a fellow creative entrepreneur who hopes to be as successful as these two girl bosses.

Totally Boss!!!

Co-hosts Emily and Kathleen tell it how it is to be a female entrepreneur more than any other podcast or mentor I’ve listened to. When I first heard them talk about “fraudy feelings,” I was like, OMG I’m not the only one! It is so validating when they discuss how challenging yet rewarding it is to be a creative entrepreneur. I listen to their episodes over and over, and recommend them to all my fellow Boss Ladies! Thanks for the real talk, ladies!

Have enjoyed thoroughly

I wanted to leave a review for you both (Emily and Kathleen) to say that I've enjoyed your voice on my way to work, home and on the weekends. You both really know how to make someone feel like they're not alone. You've really had some great episodes lately and I learn so much from you both. I've owned by print shop for 12 years and am now starting to really learn how to act like a business owner instead of an employee. Thank you for your wisdom and courage to put it all out there for women in business. #courage #bossbabe #givingbackChristine Walsh
